    Far-left actor and political expert wannabe George Clooney blasted Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump for his remarks about illegal immigrants — especially those from Mexico. Speaking at a news conference Saturday at the Toronto Film Festival, Clooney referred to Trump’s comments as “idiotic” and said that history will not smile on the billionaire real estate developer, according to the Daily Mail. “Clearly, what he said is idiotic,” Clooney told reporters. “Of course it’s idiotic.” Clooney was noting Trump’s comments, when he announced his candidacy, referring to Mexican illegal immigrants as “rapists” and other countries saddling the U.S. with their problems....

    Los Angeles, CA (BANG) - George Clooney has hired to psychic to help him contact his dead pig. The "Leatherheads" star is still mourning the loss of his beloved potbellied pet Max, who died in 2006, and asked a medium to get in touch with the swine. George reportedly told a friend: "The psychic told me Max had a great life with me. He is very happy in spirit and still hangs out with me sometimes." "I am not sure she was telling the truth but I do want to believe her." The handsome actor was left devastated after 300lb...

    I know Obama's creepy apprenticeship under George Clooney is nothing new, but how is this image for unsettling? (source:http://www.thefirstpost.co.uk/1842,features,obama-the-hollywood-candidate) Ingrid Bergman put the actor's mentality perfectly: "It's not whether you really cry. It's whether the audience thinks you are crying." Substitute "cry" for "know what's going on," and you've got the foundation for Hollywood's involvement in politics. I doubt any FReepers care about celebrity political endorsements, but does anyone personally know an individual who was profoundly affected by a celebrity endorsement? I'm just trying to determine the number of Americans who are completely incapable of thinking independently. There is a...

    Clooney boycott threat to OscarsJohn Harlow THE Hollywood star George Clooney is being credited with inspiring an actors’ boycott against film award ceremonies that threatens to reduce next weekend’s Golden Globe Awards to a shambles and is jeopardising the most important event in the Hollywood calendar, next month’s Oscars. This weekend the Screen Actors Guild announced that the 70 actors shortlisted for awards at the Globes will not be attending the ceremony in sympathy with scriptwriters who have been on strike for two months. Officially, television network NBC, which splits millions of advertising dollars with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association,...

    Brad Pitt has spoken about his choice for next President of the United States – His good pal George Clooney! Speaking to Parade magazine, the Ocean’s Eleven actor encouraged his fellow co-star to run for political office, and if George fails then Ben Affleck should try out for President instead. He says: "I never thought about it. I have no desire at this point. Maybe I serve better by not going through that door. "George should do it! He'd be quite good. I think Ben Affleck should run." We think Ben Affleck would be better suited. He needs a career...

    Hollywood agent-turned-documentary maker Pat Dollard has attacked George Clooney's outspoken anti-war stance. Dollard - the former agent of regular Clooney colleague Steven Soderbergh - is currently making a pro-war documentary about Marines fighting in Iraq. He was furious when Clooney urged more Democrats to speak out against the war and 'congratulated' himself for doing so. He tells PageSix.com, "I read something on the Internet in which someone was patting himself on the back for having the courage to oppose the war. They actually equate bravery with speaking out against the president because (losing fans) might cost them one less servant...

    LOS ANGELES -- Commentator Ariana Huffington apologized to readers for a blog posted on her Web site on March 13 that was attributed to actor George Clooney but was actually a compilation of his views. Huffington acknowledged on her Web site Saturday that she was "blinded" to the issue of assembling a blog in which the source of the material wasn't clear, as was the case with Clooney. "I now realize that I made a big mistake in posting a blog without clearly identifying that the material in it didn't originate as a blog post, but was pieced together from...

    Actor and director George Clooney says he is proud to be denounced as unpatriotic for questioning US policy because he wanted to be on "the right side of history". Interviewed on BBC television about his latest films Syriana and Good Night, and Good Luck, Clooney said that not only did he accept the right to be attacked for his views but he even relished them. Clooney, who has weathered attacks since opposing the 2003 Iraq invasion, said at one point that it was "frustrating" to be listed as a "traitor" on a set of playing cards, but he also accepted...

    George Clooney is convinced he ruined John Kerry's chances in the race for US president in 2004 - by snubbing an invitation and hurting his feelings. The Ocean's Twelve actor was one of several screen stars invited to ride on Kerry's election train, but it all went downhill for the Democrat when Clooney stayed away. He recalls: "Kerry asked me to ride on his train - he had a train going cross-country after he was nominated and some actors went on board. I called him and explained that I couldn't do it. I'd hurt him. I'd actually caused him harm...

    The liberal media have been screaming about federal departments or agencies sponsoring or buying news here and abroad. But they were strangely silent when Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice announced on December 13 that the State Department would launch an Edward R. Murrow Journalism Program to influence foreign journalists. It seems that a federal program honoring an icon of the liberal media is considered an acceptable mix of journalism and state. The Rice announcement buys into the myth perpetuated by the George Clooney movie, "Good Night and Good Luck," that Murrow, a CBS journalist who became director of the U.S....

    GEORGE CLOONEY has declared the past 12 months to be the worst year of his life, after dealing with death, depression and health problems. Among his long list of woes, the 44-year-old actor had to deal with painful spinal damage after gaining a huge amount of weight for his role in his latest movie SYRIANA. He says, "When I started the movie I had gone through a series of sort of unhappy times. Some bad things had happened in my life and it's also depressing to put on that much weight that quickly. I did it in 30 days. "So...

    Your voice: George Clooney It's recently been brought to my attention that my father, Nick Clooney, has been running for Congress from the 4th District of Kentucky. Although he told me, I didn't really believe him until I started reading all the stories about myself in the paper. It seems the best way to campaign against my father is to go after me. The head of the Kentucky 4th District GOP, Marcus Carey, is quoted in the Enquirer as saying that because of me, my father and I will "go down with my ship" - a reference to a film...

I just want someone smart to stand up and shout, 'Bullshit!' They tell us we're going to war and no one's saying 'Bullshit' loud enough. And the language! Listen to the language! 'Evil.' 'Evil'? 'Nexus of evil'? 'Evil-doer'? That's my favourite, 'evil-doer'! What's wrong with their vocabulary: couldn't they come up with 'schmuck'?" "What did Bush do on 9/11? He ran away and hid.

    He takes home a $35 million pay packet. He's adorable. He's political. He can out-soignee Sinatra. So why does George Clooney feel 'stoopid'? Sally Vincent reports. As far as he is concerned, George Clooney has always been famous. Because his dad was famous. And his aunt was the singer Rosemary Clooney. His dad was, still is, a journalist, a television newsman. He grew up in Kentucky, where hillbillies live and the cheeseburger was invented and all the boys are called Billy-Bob or Billy-Joe or Billy-Jim, with only about 15 surnames between the lot of them, and if you fell off...

    BERLIN, Feb 23 (Reuters) - American actor George Clooney stepped up his criticism of George W. Bush's administration on Sunday, saying he feared a war against Iraq was inevitable but would ultimately only lead to more violence. "America's policies frustrate me," Clooney said in a German television programme. "I think a war against Iraq is as unavoidable as it senseless. I think it's coming. But I also think the real danger is going to be what happens after it."
